i just installed phpBB2 (the instructions were pretty simple) -- and the plugin gets listed with the geeklof admin panel (PLUGINS) -- however, when i click on INSTALL --although i get no error message -- nothing happens and the STATUS reads PLUGIN IS NOT UNINSTALLED

The same thing happened when i installed forum2.5

please any advice? - thanks

Globals is set to "ON" -- so that is not the problem

Having similar problems here:

and here:

and here:

http://www.geeklog.net/forum/viewtopic.php?forum=2&showtopic=43337

-> I attempted the solution in this thred, by appending the if statement:

PHP Formatted Code
if ($group_id == 0){
//lets try and get the data via a different means
$jl = "select last_insert_id()";
$result = DB_query($jl);
$jl_id = DB_fetchArray ($result);
$group_id = $jl_id[0];
COM_errorLog("group_id is set to $group_id",1);
}
 


to the install.php file of the plugin to no avail, I still received the same blank page.



(Sorry for all the posts, just trolling the boards to see if anyone has found a solution to this problem yet, and attempting to link these problems which might be caused from the same issue.)

I had this same trouble when attempting to insall phpBB2.
After loggin into my admin accoutn in Geeklog, and clicking plugins, then clicking install, it would not install/integrate and final page stated UNINSTALLED.
Also, under the submission block I would get the 'register_globals' not set to 'on'..
So I asked my host and they informed me of something I read on another post here in the forum.. I believe I read it via a link that cspires provides on this same page..
using the 'php.ini' file from my root directory, I checked it to make sure it has 'register_globals' set to 'on' and then uploaded it into every directory (folder) in my geeklog site that had a .php file in it.. (and maybe to some that didn't)..

so it did the trick. the install completed and the phpBB2 integrated into my geeklog site and now shows as a plugin module in the plugin section.
thanks to cspires and the other person that posted this info about copying the php.ini into all the directories..

hope it helps you also..
